    Will definitely stay again

    Very clean and fun stay with the family. Pool was nice but very warm due to the hot weather (the next day it was just about perfect after the overnight rain). Really close to the boardwalk and beach. We had the Do Not Disturb sign up, and housekeeping left us a bag of towels and soaps each day, which was really nice. Staff was always friendly.

    Love Harris House

    We always have a great stay at Harris House, the employees are friendly and the rooms are clean. Have stayed here multiple years, location is excellent, right off the boardwalk. It has a pool, but we're ocean lovers, so haven't used it yet.

  • 6.0.Good

    First let me say that I'm not an experienced beachgoer. I guess the properties biggest benefit is how close it is to the beach and the boardwalk. However, that was pretty much it's only benefit. The room was a very cramped. The beds felt like they were from the '70s. The pillows were terrible. There was no comforter so you had to snuggle up with a sheet. Although, the website says all their bathrooms are remodeled, ours was not. It wouldn't even hold water for a bath. Being that I have a baby, that was really disappointing. But, it was clean. I guess I just expected more for the price that you pay.

    The motel was clean and staff very friendly, but dated as are most places in nj shore. In the morning we can hear everything outside as we were on the first floor. The toilet did get clogged but staff came in 5 min to unclog it. It was basically next to the boardwalk so location was excellent.

    Very close to the beach and boardwalk. The rooms were small but the the room was a great place to sleep and take showers. The pool was nice for the kids too. The motel also gives you badges for the beach so you don’t have to pay to go to the beach. Overall very nice location and parking is included, one car spot per room.

    Great stay, reasonable price!

    We arrived prior to check-in and were issued a parking permit and beach tags to start enjoying the day. Staff responded promptly to a clogged toilet. Everyone was very pleasant and helpful. The location just off the boardwalk was great! We didn't use the pool, but it was in good condition. Great stay!
